Publisher Deep Silver just announced that Saints Row IV is making its way onto the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 later this year.
In this installment, the leader of the Third Street Saints (that’s you) has been elected as President of the United States. Alien invaders then transport you and your fellow Saints to a simulation of Steelport, giving you access to superpowers to free humanity from the mental prison of the alien Zinyak.
Joystiq was told that Saints Row IV is not simply the Saints Row 3 “Enter the Dominatrix” standalone expansion in a different wrapper.
“That expansion was canceled and elements of it were rolled into Saints Row IV,” a spokesperson for publisher Deep Silver tells Joystiq. “There will be a director’s cut of Enter the Dominatrix released as DLC when SR4 comes out.”
Deep Silver acquired the rights to publish Saints Row IV in January during the bankruptcy action of closed publisher THQ and its nice to see that they are keeping the humor intact. Saints Row IV will launch on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on August 20, 2013, in North America and August 23, 2013, in the rest of the world.
